    the Walbro 255's are small as in physically small you would need to make a custom sleave for it to sit in the fuel pump housing and its got a strange pick up compared to standard.

    Is your s3 one failing or just not givng enough?

    if its just not giving enough buy an in-line pump and plumb it in where your fuel filter is and mover the filter to the engine bay.

    from recent reviews i would advise the bosch044 pump as well over the walbro.

    Yeah I fitted the walbro 255 into original housing last night, as ginge said they are tiny compared to the original pump.
    But I broke my s3 being a rough b###ard removing it, so in the end cut both ends iff and put the walbro inside the casing.

    I had one of these fitted during mapping at stealth racing. He has a spacer specially made to be a direct fit :)

    He also sells them as a kit :) if this helps anyone

    No pics I'm afraid. He had already fitted it into the pump housing. But it just looked like a metal sleeve that sat on top of the Walbro pump.

    Think he said there 100+ vat for pump and fit kit. You probs have to ring up and order one
